At home in Ireland
We loved this house, with all its amenities, comfort, and gorgeous surroundings. The only drawback might be that it is not in walking distance of shops and restaurants. However, its country location was really nice to come back to after a day of sight-seeing. The only regret we had was that we didn't have more days to spend here.
Stop looking & Book this place!
The house ... the pictures don't do it justice! We LOVED the house so much! We wanted to be away from big cities and tourists and this is it! We loved exploring Quinn, Ennis and of course Newmarket-on-Fergus! Take a walk down the street and you'll find an amazing old ruined church.
The location is great, close enough to the major highways and easy to get to major sites. Cliffs of Moher, Ferry to Aran Islands. However still in a little town, that had everything we needed.
Gill is a fantastic host, so easy to communicate with and quick to answer any and all questions! Loads of information for guests in the home which we found so helpful!
This was our first time traveling abroad from the States, so I was a little nervous but every night coming back to this place was great getting back ' home'!
Staying here made our visit to Ireland that much more special and memorable! Thank you Gill for this great place!
Wonderful, cozy home!
What a beautiful home- it was perfect for our family! It was spacious but also very cozy. Gillian was great to work with and provided great information.
Lakeside retreat with the lot...
This property was breathtaking, the views incredible and the location so quite. This property had everything and then some, it felt like home. Our host had thought of everything comfort warmth, space and entertainment. Our kids had a ball running around the backyard and playing the huge variety of board games, and the large spacious kitchen with a wood burner was just what we needed to reconnect and recharge for the next adventure. The location of this place was close enough to a small village to gather supplies, not to mention close to the amazing living past of Craggaunowen and Quinn Abby tavern which has delicious family meals, so good we went there twice. This is a beautiful slice of country lakeside living, thank you for our stay.
